That’s right. Colorado’s Denver County has added cannabis growing to their growing contest for their county fair in summer of this year. For the first time, cannabis will be featured next to pepper plants and pies to seek the county’s blue ribbon.
Okay, so the cannabis will not be at the fairgrounds and the judging will be done off site; however, pictures of the winning plant will be on display at the fairgrounds. The are also doing a joint rolling competition, but with oregano and not cannabis.
Fair organizers say that the pot-themed events will be only one of the odd events at their fairgrounds this summer. Denver County fair also include a competition for building dioramas out of marshmallow and a drag queen competition.
Tracy Wells, the fair’s marketing and creative director, said, “We thought it was time for us to take that leap and represent one of the things Denver has going on.”
The cannabis categories for the fair include live plants, clones, brownies, savory foods, homemade bongs, homemade roach clips, and clothing and fabric made of hemp.
